MEDIUMS: Acrylic
SPECIALTY: ✔ Generalist

After taking hundreds of nature hikes at dawn in England’s New Forest, I have an enduring fondness of soft light, flowers, and paths.

As an artist, I want to bring my viewers to a place of peace.

I see paintings as still-points, reminders to slow down and enjoy the moments.

What Collectors are Saying:

“Sue! I can’t sing your praises enough! Not only are you an extremely talented artist, your kindness just shows in everything you do.”

“Just a quick note to let you know I received the beautiful masterpiece. Thanks so much! The colors are exquisite and really brighten my day. I’m enjoying building this collection.”

“You are my favorite painter. Almost every day I say, ‘I wish I could paint like that!'”

“Dear Sue, I was completely taken back by the quality of the three hydrangeas prints you sent. The vibrancy of the color and the ability to see the brush strokes honestly took my breath away. I am beyond thrilled that I asked for 3 to share the art with my sisters on their birthdays this spring. You know I’m a fan. This is the best way to have and also share one of my FAVORITE paintings of yours! WOW. Thank you so much!”

“I received “Joy Soaked” yesterday and I can honestly say I was Joy Soaked! So beautiful, even more so in person. It makes me happy every time I look at it! Thank you!”

“Hi Sue! I just got my paintings! They are more beautiful than your pictures! Wow! May your kindness and generosity be rewarded many times over, friend.”
